Okay, so we are about to give you plenty of reasons why you should choose DIGS student accommodation.

The bills are all inclusive – university is stressful enough without hunting around for the best individual deals and watching your bills fluctuate each month. Too. Much. Stress.

The broadband is super-fast – you’ll never sit fretting over an awfully slow internet connection during your time with DIGS. If you haven’t done your uni work, you can’t blame us. Sorry.

A room for every budget – regardless of your needs or budget we can provide something suitable for each one of you. We have ensuite rooms, flats and studio apartments. DIGS student accommodation prides itself on being an all-rounder in student satisfaction.

Your safety is paramount – we have CCTV and management teams who are there to ensure you are living in a safe and secure environment.

Amenities nearby – all DIGS living quarters are close to local amenities. You will never be far away from the things you want and need.

We provide exciting events and experiences – DIGS aims to ensure your student experience is as exciting and fun as possible. We want to make your student experience the best student experience. You’re only a student once after all.

DIGS maintenance teams are always there to help – whenever you need assistance with an issue you have in your room, you can call for help which will be resolved as quickly as possible.

Extra amenities are a bonus – we have bars, study areas and even games rooms on site. We will always try our best to meet student requests.

At DIGS we centre everything we do around our customers. We strive to continuously improve our service to ensure our customer satisfaction cannot be beaten by another student accommodation provider. We hope our dedication to our students has helped you make your decision about your future living arrangements. If you have, now you must decide which DIGS location is the perfect fit for you.


Bolton – The Cube

Bolton is one of the UK’s friendliest towns. It is also one of the biggest towns in the country which isn’t a City so it is perfect for those of you who want somewhere a little quieter than a City but still wish to live in a town with character and excitement.

You can have a room in ‘The Cube’ from just £91 per week and it is only a short walk from the train station, bus station and the University. Bolton has excellent railway service and links to all major cities, Manchester and Liverpool are very easily reached. If you want to begin the next chapter of your life surrounded by friendly Boltonians then The Cube is the choice for you.

If you’re partial to a pasty then you will probably have found the ultimate decision maker. Ye Olde Pastie Shoppe is famous for its pasties and has queues outside every day, they truly are that good! It started life as a butchers in 1667 and it’s now a piece of history.

There are plenty of pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants for all tastes and there are always regular student nights and multiple venues to enjoy. The shopping is a wonderful collection of high street brands and independent retailers and four days a week Bolton market comes to life.

Huddersfield – Storthes Hall Park and Ashenhurst Houses

Huddersfield is the 11th largest town in the UK and is situated between Leeds and Manchester. Huddersfield is a great student accommodation location choice if you want a harmonious marriage between the city and country life. There are also two accommodation choices to choose from in Huddersfield. It is a very well connected town with links to the M62 and the M1. The railway is pretty impressive too: Manchester (40 minutes) and Leeds (25 minutes); plus services to Barnsley, Bradford, Sheffield, Halifax. Direct too to Scarborough, York and Liverpool.

Kingsgate Shopping Centre is an excellent choice for some retail therapy after a long week of lectures. There are also two other shopping centres and if you fancy something different you can hop on a train to Meadowhall in Sheffield. Or you could even head to Leeds city centre.

Tuesday and Wednesday nights are particularly cheap for students in Huddersfield and DIGS provides a bus service to and from the town.

London – Ravenscourt

Well, we don’t think London needs an introduction really. London is the capital and is the busiest and most energetic city in the UK. Central London can be reached in 20 minutes from DIGS Ravenscourt. So, for those of you who love to shop and socialise then this might be the deal breaker.

There will always be touristy things which are new to you, regardless of how long you have lived there. It is just so exciting! London has over 170 museums and 11 national museums, wow! For those of you who love to read (and of course study), London has more than 800 bookshops and over 380 public libraries. Ravenscourt Park tube station is only a few minutes walk away and provides excellent transport links all around London.

London has wonderful rooftop bars, you might even bump into a celebrity too! London in general is one of the best cities in the world for culture, fashion, nightlife and history. If you come from a small town or village, you may want to head to London for a mighty change of scenery and lifestyle. Or perhaps you are coming from a busy city and you can’t imagine living life away from the city buzz.

Sheffield – The Pinnacles

Sheffield is the 4th biggest city in England. Our student accommodation in Sheffield is situated not far from the city centre and Meadowhall shopping centre is easily reached.

The nightlife in Sheffield is incredible, West Street and Division Street offer bar after bar. There are a handful of clubs you’ll be sure to love. Plug, DQ and Nocturnal to name just a few. There are an array of museums, theatres and galleries. It is a piece of heaven for cultural enthusiasts.

Sheffield is notably a city of opportunity and success and is a great place to study, work and live. With a vibrant and colourful arts scene and a growing local economy, it is a city on its way up and up. The Pinnacles offers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom apartments. You can live here from just £107 per week.

Wolverhampton – Chambers 51

Wolverhampton is a city in the West Midlands. It is just a 20 minute train ride from the heart of Birmingham and was declared a city in the year 2000. The Wolerhampton accent is enough to raise a smile when you’re having a bad day. You won’t be sad for long living here.

There are clubs, bars, coffee shops and restaurants on your doorstep. With some beautiful country locations just a few miles out of the city.

Wolverhampton is a diverse, multicultural and busy city which offers something great for students. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the University of Wolverhampton and the transport links are excellent, with Birmingham New Street Station just a short train journey away. There are excellent coach services to major UK services.
